I wont nerve you but:

a) Java sucks


aa) It isn't free (no.. Java ISN'T free...)
ab) There OSs with NO official JAVA-Runtime (or even NONE at all)

SUN gave a License to FreeBSD but they rejected their promise later.

b) Nice concept but

ba) Java, see a) :-/

c) Maybe you should prefere an english Website.
   I can read it but I guess a lot other peoples can't. :-)

A rewrite in C, BSD-Licensed, could "maybe" merged into the official
John-Code. If solar accapts it. :-)

So the Mainproblem is still a) and "no" this is not something less
importent. Can I use your file? No... see a) :-)

Kind regards,
